I saw a funny meme the other day.
It was about the invention of archery – the idea that people learned to shoot arrows because the guy they wanted to fight was “way over there.”
And while that’s funny, it’s a fact that firearms were invented for the same reason.
They let you defend yourself from someone at a distance, and if you can’t carry a gun, you are at a HUGE disadvantage.
Or you were.
One option, if you can’t or won’t carry a gun, but you still want to be able to defend yourself at a distance, is a throwing knife.
Now, no, you aren’t going to be hurling these from down the block like some kind of precision ninja.
But having a razor sharp piece of steel hurled at your face will make any criminal rethink his attack…
…even if you miss!
The throwing knives I rely on are the TRS Stinger X8 blades.
If someone is far enough away that you can’t reach them, and you need to preempt their attack on you, a fast jolt from your throwing knife – even if the handle-end hits them – can give you the advantage you need.
No, the knife isn’t going to spin through the air, hit them in the skull, and drop them like cow that’s been bolt-gunned…
…but NOBODY can continue their attack when a razor-sharp blade is flying at their face!
The dirty little secret about knife-throwing is that it isn’t hard to learn.
You just need a good blade, a good guide, and a little bit of practice.
The folks at FightFast have a great beginner’s package (that is also fun for more experienced knife throwers).
The next time you need to preempt somebody’s attack on you, you’ll have the tools and the know-how to do it.
And with this guide, you’ll learn how to do that while also kicking butt on the street.
